Laptop won't connect to network..
trying to connect to wireless we have. It's roughly a 2003 emachine laptop with windows xp.
anyway.. this is what it is telling me...
varios icons in lower right.. 2 comps with X saying Local Area Connection 2 A Netowrk Cable is Unplugged
1 comp icon with little waves and a red saying Connection 2 Not Connected, Right click for more options. And there is also another icon down there of a little red check mark with a red button type thing and an X on it, saying Wireless Network Connection 2 Radio is Disabled.
So I try turning on this "radio" and it says Enabled when i locate the setting in the Broadcom 802.11g Network adapter properties.
I don't really know what info you all need, as I am totally lost with all of this.
Under network adapters in the Device Manager it shows the Broadcom 802.11g network adapter and it also shows SiS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter.
ANY IDEAS ON WHATS GOING ON? Any help is appreciated
Also.. when i check the configuration and status it says the devices are working properly for both the network and ethernet adapters. what is going on hereeee???
